Upon completion of the Master of Fine Arts in Ceramics, Molanphy received a Fulbright Fellowship to study at the National Manufactory of Sèvres, France.

Molanphy began teaching ceramics at Southern Methodist University in 2011. In 2012 he was awarded a Meadows travel grant and a University Research Council grant for continued research on marbled clay.
